Once you are done with your wedding reception and your grand wedding exit, it is a perfect time to indulge in your post-wedding photography as well. As we mentioned earlier, The Carter Center is home to some gorgeous spots like the entrance and the park on the premises.  However, if you wish to venture out, you could even hop to various nearby locations. Atlanta is an unquestionably ravishing city with a lot of photogenic locations ranging from classic historical sites to verdant parks and everything in between. Atlanta, the capital city of Georgia offers a plethora of glamor and urban flavor that also serves as a perfect backdrop for your pre-wedding or engagement photo session.

To give you a fair idea, we have compiled a list of nearby locations where your pre-wedding photography and post-wedding photography will be trendsetters! In fact, you could even visit these locations on the way to The Carter Center for spectacular pre-wedding ceremony photography, wedding day photography, or your first look. Read on to explore more. 

Fox Theatre

If your wedding has continued till late and you are short of places for your post-wedding photography, there’s always the Fox Theatre. Just six minutes away! After all, what’s more Atlanta than the Fox Theatre? A National Historic Landmark, its classic marquee sign, and architecture are not only a favorite of all the locals but our Atlanta wedding photographers as well! Strike a romantic pose with your husband against the iconic backdrop of the Fox Theater sign, with that perfect wedding glow, and witness your wedding day photo album get its most iconic Atlanta post-wedding photos.  

Centennial Olympic Park

Here’s another one that’s near the wedding venue. Located just 8 minutes from The Carter Center, this 21-acre public park is home to some of the most spectacular backdrops for post-wedding photography and engagement photos. Perfect for an evening-night time photoshoot it suits all the prerequisites for your The Carter Center post-wedding photo sessions like vibrant colors, timing, and proximity. As the sun goes down, the SkyView Ferris Wheel lights up behind you in all its glory, as a stunning backdrop for your classic Atlanta post-wedding photos. The Olympic Ring Water Fountain plays a brilliant host to your romantic photos as it adds life to them. And if it rains, you are in for some really stunning photos that’ll give the word ‘romantic’ a run for its money! We highly recommend you carry an umbrella throughout the day as rain brings beautiful settings for romantic photography in Atlanta, be it during the wedding (take a cue from Jessica and Adam’s rainy wedding), or after or before it. 

Downtown Decatur

Located just 11 minutes away from the wedding venue, Downtown Decatur is undoubtedly a one-of-a-kind Atlanta engagement photography location for the Atlanta couples. Seated at an ideal location between Downtown Atlanta and Stone Mountain, Decatur holds a serene small-town essence and is overloaded with charming storefronts and parks to bring the perfect engagement photos. The open pavilion, mural, old buildings, and gazebo are brilliant spots for taking romantic photos for your pre-engagement or post-wedding photography. The old courtyard steps are a favorite of our Atlanta engagement photographers. 

Stone Mountain

This Atlanta post-wedding photography location is about a 23-minutes drive from the wedding venue. With 3,200 acres of natural beauty, the options are endless at Stone Mountain for an Atlanta engagement photoshoot. While the top of Stone Mountain lets you enjoy the sweeping views of the trees and a gorgeous sunset, you can get the amazing pictures to add to your save-the-dates. The mountain which is a quartz monzonite dome monadnock is a great place for golden hour photography as well. You could explore the wooded paths and covered bridges, or wade barefoot in a beautiful rushing creek for a dreamy engagement photoshoot. However, if you plan to hit this location for your post-wedding photography, we would recommend you to leave a bit early for this place so that you can include the bliss of golden hour in your surreal post-wedding photos.

Fort Mountain State Park

This 3,712-acre state park located between Chatsworth and Ellijay on Fort Mountain was founded in 1938. It is home to plenty of photogenic spots like a 17-acre lake, little cottages, picnic shelters, a playground, and a sandy beach. Fort Mountain State Park offers some gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Located about an hour and a half from the wedding venue, you’ll have to time it carefully though. If not for your wedding photography, you can certainly visit this beauty for your pre-wedding photo session. You could wear something classy yet comfortable for the location and carry a couple of props along. For more inspiration, take a cue from Lauren and Kyle’s Denver engagement session along the mountains. 

Indian Springs State Park

This beautiful Georgia state park is located near Jackson and Flovilla and spans 528 acres. It is one of the oldest parks in the country and is home to several springs. Their water is believed to be carrying mineral-rich healing waters containing sulfur. It’s also a great camping ground. Located roughly an hour from The Carter Center, wedding photography at the Indian Springs State Park has to be meticulously timed.  However, pre-wedding photography at the Indian Springs State Park is totally doable and absolutely worth it! The springs form a perfect backdrop to your photos, adding whimsy to the romance. The exposed-stone bridge, pillars, and walls look beautiful as backdrops adding an element of rusticity. 

Old Mill Park

Just a half-an-hour drive from The Carter Center takes you to this timeless beauty which is home to natural beauty and significant history. The Old Mill Park has plenty of photo ops where you capture stunning wedding photos like the bridge, the waterfall, benches, various trails, and the stream. The covered bridge offers great frames for your romantic photos. You can go down to the waterfall for some jaw-dropping wedding photography. For your pre-wedding photography, you can indulge in a nature walk or go to the rocks, while the water runs peacefully around you. The fact that it’s quite close to the wedding venue makes it an ideal location for your post-wedding photography in Roswell.
